Former Kansas state lawmaker Tom Love said he wants to improve literacy rates, especially in early childhood education.

A late entrant into the race for Kansas' 3rd Congressional District, Tom Love has little in the way of endorsements or funding, but he's made education the core of his campaign.

"I'm running for issues to fix things," Love said. "I'm not running against people."

The Kansas City region has long been a place where different ways of life collide. I tell the stories of people living and working where race, culture and ethnicity intersect. I examine racial equity and disparity, highlight the area's ethnic groups and communities of color, and invite all of Kansas City to explore meaningful ways to bond with and embrace cultures different from their own.
